I have lots of out of town guests from his side coming too so I kinda understand. How far away is his family coming from?

They are going to be your in laws so you have to play nice. And if they are traveling it does get expensive and I can understand him trying to help with that and spend time with them. I would tell you fiance in a calm voice that you are stressed with wedding stuff and especially that week of. You would love to be a great host but you can’t. He will have to take responsibility with his family and worry about cooking, cleaning and such. Maybe get a hotel room for just you the night before so you can unwind by yourself.

I could never deal with that! Lol. But seriously, your sister is one person and he shouldn’t be upset that you want her to stay with you.

DH lived with his aunt (a single woman) and they had a family of 5 stay with them the week before the wedding! It was squishy, but they are wonderful people and it worked out really nicely for everyone. DH’s family took them on lots of trips to see the sights near us, and they helped out a lot with all the last minute DIY I had to do. Actually, I don’t think I could’ve gotten it done without them!
